Attaxx is a single player, shareware board game that plays just like the arcade game.
Each player starts with two pieces which are located on the corners of a 7x7 grid. Players take turns to move a token either one or two fields (diagonal moves are allowed); if the piece is moved on a field which borders on the original field, a duplicate piece is created.
When one or multiple of the opponent's pieces adjoin the new position, they are converted to the player's colour. Moving is mandatory (unless there is no legal move possible) and the match is over as soon as all fields are filled up. The winner is the player who has more pieces on the board at this point.
Some fields on the board may be blocked off, these appear as a solid black cell in the grid, and a single player can compete against AI opponents of varying difficulty.
The game is played entirely with the mouse, it keeps score of the games in a session but has no high score table. The starting board layout may vary with each game.
